    Everyone that has purchased the adaptor is very happy.

    I’ll testify! The adaptor is very rugged, and holds an 18″ AT gooeneck mic for me very nicely!

    thanks John, I guess Neutrik and Switchcraft assumes nobody would need a male to female right angle adaptor.

    Completely off the wall, but does noone else use a radio mic? I grab an old VHF lapel mic – works well enough (although I normally pop it into a channel, since there is no talkback control on QuPad)

    it would be nice if the iPad’s mic could be used as a talkback, but …. NOPE.

    Most sound folks I have encountered use an old junky SM58 and plug it in to the talkback input with a short cable.

    A gooseneck mic is nice because it is faster than picking up and holding a 58, and a talkback mic is going to sound cleaner simply because it is probably spoken into from a distance if used properly.

    You *could* use the iPad mic…

    Just route it via AirPlay and an apple router.
    It’s the one link where a slight lag isn’t too much of a problem.

    I still think a nice old vhf radio mic does well 😉

    Bob, how do you route the iPad’s mic to Airplay?

    Ha, knew someone would ask that. I don’t know, there must be n app for it though…

    Google is your friend, here’s a candidate: mic for AirPlay

    Sounds likely Andreas 🙂

    I have a UHF IEM for PAFL and a VHF mic for talkback… I bought the IEM, but the vhf is from old stock…

    Well, not sure if the integrated mic of an iThing will work well for talkback at all. I guess that’s pretty omnidirectional and contains a “catch-it-all” high-gain AGC which probably makes it difficult to understand.
    …just thinking of a FOH guy holding an iPad right in front of his face crying into the microphone… If someone tries this live, please send us a pic… 😉

    I think about a headset for talkback. Has anybody tried yet and a tip?
